Less is More: 5 Steps to Redefine Making a Living

Life out of balance? Ask yourself these questions.

Sep 30, 2011

1. Nourish My Spirit

What things give me the greatest joy?
What makes me feel fulfilled, useful?
When do I feel least joyful, least fulfilled?

2. Put My Money Where My Values Are

Do I spend money on things that don’t bring me joy?
Can I find less expensive ways to travel, exercise, entertain?

3. Build Relationships and Support My Community

What can I share?
What skills, services, products can I offer others?
What opportunities do I have to barter and allow more people to operate outside the cash economy?
Where can I connect with my community to create a safety net for myself and others?

4. Say Enough is Enough

How much do I need to meet basic needs?
How much do I need beyond that to be happy?
Can I meet any of those needs without spending money?

5. Decide How Much Job I Really Need

Can I work fewer hours?
Can I share my job with someone else?
Do I have enough freedom to make the job I’ve always wanted?
